First Anniversary Of Toxic Mold Interview With Gina Lopez
This week marks the first anniversary of the beginning of our toxic mold interviews. Last year on October 19th, we published our first interview with Gina Lopez.
The interview occurred because Gina contacted me on FaceBook after I featured her story in one of our Mold In the News blogs. What started as a comment on FaceBook advising me that she was the person that the story was done on, turned into correspondence on FaceBook, several phone calls, and ultimately the interview that we published on October 19th last year. Since publishing the interview, I have followed up with Gina and published an update which highlighted that the awareness efforts are working. The follow up story published on April 15th highlighted the fact that Gina’s story empowered her to meet with Senator Peter Wirth in the state of New Mexico. Gina’s experience as a toxic mold survivor even resulted in her inclusion in a documentary on the topic.
The publication of Gina’s story has resulted in a series of other interviews with other survivors whom have come forward, including: Raffaella Tassone, Kelsey Best, Elaine Kelly, Dr. Janis Bell, Karen Dean, and Beatrice Latherings. Listed below are links to all of the toxic mold stories published to date:

The primary purpose of these interviews is to raise awareness and the long term goal is to gather and document enough interviews to do a larger study that examines the similarities and differences of the experiences that different survivors have. In order to publish a fair study, a larger data set of survivor stories is required. If you are a toxic mold survivor and want to help us create awareness, we very much would appreciate the opportunity to interview you.
